RIVERSIDE (CBSLA.com) — A male hit-run-suspect turned himself into his parole officer Monday after a fatal crash that killed two people in Riverside.

The driver was identified as 21-year-old Alex Ralph Garcia. Garcia, who is out on parole, fled the scene of the accident on foot before turning himself in to police. He was charged with felony hit-and-run, two counts of vehicular manslaughter, and violating parole. Authorities have not said what Garcia was out on parole for.

The accident was reported at 12:37 a.m. at  14th Street and Sedgwick Avenue in Riverside, police said.

Witnesses said Garcia, driving a Chevy Avalanche, ran a red light and collided with a Saturn sedan that was traveling westbound on 14th Street. The Avalanche was captured speeding towards the intersection by a neighbor’s security camera.

The driver of the Saturn, 68-year-old Robert Blackmen, and his 39-year-old female passenger died as a result of the crash. A woman in the back seat suffered bruising and was transported to Riverside General Hospital in stable condition, according to authorities.

A female passenger in the Chevy Avalanche suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information about the accident should contact the Riverside Police Department at (951) 826-5700.
